MS SharePoint Syntex explained: All you need to know about this content intelligence service

In late 2020, Microsoft released SharePoint Syntex. A Microsoft 365 content service, SharePoint Syntex adds Artificial Intelligence content service capabilities to SharePoint document libraries, creating content understanding models that automatically classify the many and various documents in those libraries. Essentially SharePoint Syntex enables businesses to efficiently use the information stored in its documents.

Right now, as a global tightening of the belt takes place, anything that optimises your organisation’s ability to make the most of its hard-earned collective intelligence and to improve productivity, is going to be attracting greater attention.

(Ha. Who would have thought that SharePoint document libraries would become a sexy tech topic – again?)

Predictions for 2019

Well they never said this job would be easy! Looking back on my predictions for 2018 I can see that they fell into two camps – the rise of AI and the rise of employee power. I’d say that AI has made significant strides in 2018 but that, as yet, it’s not increased its reach in the business world as fast as I’d predicted. So that makes the 2019 predictions very straightforward – AI will become a dominant force in the business world next year. Or will it?
